Unique method eliminates the need to isolate RNA from cultured cells
The Cells-to-Ct method features a unique lysis reagent that lyses cells and protects RNA. DNA removal occurs simultaneously in the 5-minute lysis step to save time and improve ease of use. Lysis is then stopped by the addition of a “Stop Solution” that irreversibly binds to the lysis reagents.

The TaqMan Fast Advanced Cells-to-CT Kit contains reverse transcription (RT) reagents for cDNA synthesis and TaqMan Fast Advanced Master Mix for real-time PCR analysis. TaqMan primer/probe sets are sold separately.

Simple 7-minute sample preparation
The TaqMan Fast Advanced Cells-to-CT Kit is designed for 10–100,000 cultured cells/sample. Cells are washed in PBS and lysed in solution for five minutes at room temperature; DNase treatment can be performed simultaneously. Lysis is terminated at room temperature by a 2-minute incubation with Stop Solution. The lysates are now ready for reverse transcription or storage at –20°C for a short term or -80°C for a long term.

Maximize sensitivity of detection
Unlike some competitor kits that limit the amount of lysate in the RT reaction to 10%, the TaqMan Fast Advanced Cells-to-CT Kit can accommodate 45% of the total RT reaction volume as cell lysate. Additionally, cDNA can comprise up to 45% of the real-time PCR reaction volume. The large lysate volume in the optimized RT reaction, along with the large cDNA volume in the subsequent real-time PCR using the TaqMan Fast Advanced Master Mix, lead to maximum sensitivity. The master mix amplifies the target precisely and accurately, enabling the detection of small quantities of target, such as transcripts expressed at low levels.

Reduced sample loss and transfer error
Because samples can be processed directly in culture wells (96 or 384 wells), sample handling and the potential for sample loss or transfer error are minimized, facilitating rapid, high-throughput processing. Unlike old-fashioned, multi-step RNA isolation protocols, no heating, washing, or centrifugation steps are required. The kit greatly simplifies a laborious 30–60 minute process and reduces it to 7 minutes.

Analyzing the human microbiome
The human body is populated by 100 trillion bacteria, archaea, fungi, protists, and viruses, all of which play a fundamental role in our well-being. The term "microbiome" refers to the various different microbes in those communities. Presently, their genes are the most straightforward method of identifying these organisms. Deviations from healthy microbial compositions have been linked to many human diseases, including inflammatory bowel disease, obesity, cancer, asthma, diabetes, and allergies.

Purification of the aggregate microbial DNA in a biological sample is a key step in understanding how the microbiome influences human health. It is of utmost importance that the DNA recovered accurately reflects the representation of the diverse microbes in the sample community. The mechanical disruption and triple lysis approach used in the PureLink Microbiome DNA Kit help ensure that microbial DNA from even the toughest samples, such as gram-positive bacteria found in stool, can be recovered—allowing you to identify the full spectrum of microbes present.

PureLink™ PCR Purification Kit (Invitrogen™)

The PureLink PCR Purification Kit provides a more convenient, rapid, and high-yielding purification process compared to other companies' kits. After PCR amplification, purification of the PCR amplicons is required for many common downstream applications, including enzyme digestion, ligation, sequencing, and labeling experiments, to prevent enzymes (polymerase, restriction enzyme) and reaction components (dNTPs, primers, buffers, salts) from carrying over, contaminating, and negatively influencing the downstream experiments.

Advantages of the PureLink PCR Purification Kit include:
• 4X binding capacity compared to Company Q; 40 µg for the PureLink kit versus 10 µg from other companies' kits
• No need for tedious sample pH adjustments necessary with other kits
• Convenient and rapid protocol, completed in less than 10 minutes
• Optional size-selection buffers included for selectively purifying 300– 600 bp fragments or removing fragments < 300 bp

The PureLink PCR Purification Kit is based on the selective binding of dsDNA to silica-based membrane in the presence of chaotropic salts. Simply mix the PCR product with Binding Buffer and apply to the PureLink Spin Column. The dsDNA binds to the silica-based membrane in the column. Remove impurities by thorough washing with Wash Buffer. To purify the DNA, elute the dsDNA in low-salt Elution Buffer or water.The purified PCR product is suitable for automated fluorescent DNA sequencing, restriction enzyme digestion, and cloning.

ChargeSwitch™-Pro PCR Clean-Up Kit (Invitrogen™)

The ChargeSwitch®-Pro PCR Clean-up Kit purifies high-quality DNA fragments without the use of ethanol or harsh salts known to interfere with enzymatic reactions. The ChargeSwitch®-Pro Kit provides:
• 100% ethanol-free, guanidinium-free, organic solvent-free protocols
• Improved downstream performance
• Complete kit for fast, hassle-free setup
• 20% fewer handling steps than most PCR clean-up protocols
• Purification of up to 500 µl of PCR product in one column

How It Works

ChargeSwitch® technology employs a completely novel mechanism that replaces harsh reagents such as chaotropic salts, ethanol, or organic solvents and isopropanol precipitation with a simple ion-exchange procedure. In this method, DNA binds to a surface ligand that is positively charged at low pH, and is eluted when the pH is raised to 8.5 (Figure 1). The ChargeSwitch®-Pro protocol retains the ease and familiarity of common silica spin-column protocols with binding, washing, and elution steps (Figure 2).

Better Downstream Results

Since ChargeSwitch® technology does not require the use of ethanol, chaotropic salts, or organic solvents for nucleic acid purification, the resulting DNA is free of enzymatic inhibitors and thus shows better downstream performance (Figure 3). These compounds are known to inhibit many enzymatic reactions such as PCR, cloning, restriction enzyme digestion, and array CGH labeling. Expect to see reduced variability in your sequencing applications, with reads in excess of 800 bp with Phred scores >20 (Figure 4); clean restriction enzyme digestions (Figure 5); and removal of dNTPs and primers in excess of 98% (Figure 6).

Dynabeads™ mRNA Purification Kit (for mRNA purification from total RNA preps) (Invitrogen™)

The Dynabeads® mRNA Purification Kit rapidly isolates the mRNA transcriptome in typically 15 minutes, delivering pure, intact mRNA. The kit is designed to specifically target, capture, and purify mRNA molecules from total RNA preparations. Advantages of using the Dynabeads® mRNA Purification Kit:

• Obtain pure mRNA in typically 15 minutes
• Recover and enrich the transcriptome efficiently
• Prepare mRNA that is suitable for nearly every downstream application

Pure, rapid mRNA isolation
The Dynabeads® mRNA Purification Kit contains magnetic beads for the isolation of the mRNA transcriptome from any total eukaryotic RNA preparation (see figure). Dynabeads® magnetic beads are uniform in size and highly mobile in solution (see figure). This enables the bead capture surface to quickly and continuously interact with the entire total RNA sample during the mRNA capture phase. The ribosomal RNA and small RNA molecules (transfer RNA, microRNA, small nucleolar RNA, and small cytoplasmic RNA) do not bind to the beads and are discarded. Only polyadenylated RNA species (mRNA) are captured resulting in cleaner, more sensitive results (see figure). Within about 15 minutes, pure mRNA is isolated and ready for use in downstream applications.

A straightforward enrichment procedure
The Dynabeads® mRNA Purification Kit uses a robust affinity purification principle for the enrichment of polyadenylated mRNA. Superparamagnetic Dynabeads®, coupled to oligo-(dT)25, are first equilibrated with Binding Buffer, and then mixed with purified total RNA. The beads are then washed to remove contaminating RNA species, and then mRNA is eluted in as little as 5 µL of 10 mM Tris-HCl. The entire process is facilitated by the use of a neodymium magnet (purchased separately), which allows for the quick and efficient immobilization of the magnetic beads during buffer changes. RNA is suitable for all downstream molecular applications, including:

• Gene cloning
• cDNA synthesis, cDNA library construction
• RT-PCR, quantitative RT-PCR
• RPA (Ribonuclease Protection Assay)
• Subtractive hybridization
• Dot/slot hybridization
• Primer extension

PureLink™ HiPure Plasmid FP (Filter and Precipitator) Maxiprep Kit (Invitrogen™)

The PureLink™ HiPure Plasmid FP (Filter and Precipitator) Maxiprep Kit isolates plasmid DNA, from cell pellet to ultrapure DNA, in less than one hour. Using the HiPure Filter Columns and HiPure Precipitators supplied in the kit, you can purify plasmid DNA without the centrifugation steps required in traditional isolation protocols. The quality of the purified plasmid DNA is equivalent to that obtained by two passes through cesium chloride gradients - the most rigorous method for DNA purification - making it suitable for transfection and other applications requiring high-purity plasmid DNA. The PureLink™ HiPure Plasmid FP Maxiprep Kit (Table 1) provides:
• Simple protocols - bacterial lysate clarification and isopropanol precipitation without centrifugation
• Fast results - from E. coli cell pellet to high-purity, transfection-grade plasmid DNA in about 60 minutes
• High yields - up to 850 µg from a high-copy plasmid

How it works
The PureLink™ HiPure Plasmid FP Maxiprep Kit employs an alkaline lysis method to prepare and rapidly clear bacterial lysates without the need for centrifugation (Figure 1). The unique HiPure Filter Column includes a lysate filtration cartridge integrated into the anion-exchange column for single-step lysate clarification and plasmid DNA binding. Impurities such as RNA, proteins, and other contaminants are removed with a single wash, and ultrapure plasmid DNA is eluted with a high-salt buffer. To precipitate and desalt the DNA, isopropanol is added to the eluted DNA and the mixture is then applied to the HiPure Precipitator using a large syringe. After a subsequent washing and drying step, the plasmid DNA is easily eluted from the HiPure Precipitator with either TE buffer or water. The use of the precipitator eliminates the need for centrifugation, reducing the risk of losing the DNA pellet during supernatant removal, and saving time. The resulting DNA is ready to use in the most challenging applications. The entire protocol - from E. coli cell pellet to ultrapure transfection-grade plasmid DNA - can be completed in about an hour.

Highest yields and ready-to-use concentrations
The HiPure Precipitator has been optimized to allow for lower elution volumes (down to 500 µl) to produce highly concentrated DNA without a significant decrease in yields. In fact, yields at higher concentrations are consistently higher than the competitor kits (Figure 2). Yields and concentration can be adjusted to meet the needs of your downstream application.
